I have built and manage a few websites. These include AGPower92 Triso-Fueled Nuclear Reactor Development and Law Offices of Steven Kaftal. Of course, I have been web developer and webmaster of Oriental Outpost since 2002.
If you need help building, upgrading, or maintaining your website, please contact me. I am affordable, and my websites are built for hundreds of dollars (not thousands). I enjoy the art and solving the puzzle of building a good website for small business owners.
Below is my resume, with relevant details at the top, and my adventurous lifestyle in the second half.
